I Love Anything Patriotic

I am a mom of two and I love feeling good inside out. Being a mother and a full-time housewife does not mean you let yourself go or look “lusyang” since what you do is run a household and take care of your family. That’s a big no no for me.

One of the things I do in order to look good for myself is wearing current, trendy yet affordable clothes. I also love showing my patriotism to this great country, and with that being said, fashion and patriotism combined in one clothing, yes please! I am into that.

I so love anything patriotic, whether it be undies, cover-ups, tops or dresses. I am attracted to this kind of fashion. One of which is the cover-up I recently bought from Amazon. I find it appealing and so I knew I am gonna love this clothing once I get it, I am right. It is soft, comfy to the skin, the size fits perfect in me and most of all, it’s the American flag!

I got a few US flag tops in my closet and I am waiting for the right time to wear them, show them that I am a proud United States law abiding citizen!

Saturday Mall Shopping – Chevron Print Kind of Day

I left in the house early this morning for I was concerned that it will be too crowded at one store which happens to have a day sale for flip flops. As early as 9 a.m we were headed to our first stop, CVS to grab some things which is on the way to the mall. Second stop is at Old Navy, they are having an in-store special today only for solid flip flops cost $1/pair, normally sold for $3.50. I bought ten pairs, you might think it is too crazy to buy that many pairs. Mind you, most of these pairs will go to the Philippines for my family.

As expected, the crowd was massive, the checkout was a bit slow albeit there were four people working at the register. The line was too long that it almost wrapped around the store inside. Anyhow, I chose to go there so I was willing and patient enough to stand in line.

After Old Navy, we went back to the mall and shopped some more. Last destination was Rue21. There I hauled pretty nice prints clothing and paid 50% with the use of a store coupon sent to me by a friend. Total was $44 plus tax and was able to make it down to only $25.95. It was a Chevron print kind of day for me. Look at my haul below. First photo was the two flounce top maxi dresses I tried on, I was torn between those two prints, I was gonna buy both but realized I love Chevron more.

…. Another thing I bought for me are these cute Chevron print top and a white cropped bottom. Yes, I know I still got a few new clothing hanging in my closet with tags in them but I know these make me happy. Eventually I’ll be able to wear them, so no worries. I had a good time shopping today and saved at the same time.

Going out to breathe a fresh air without my little one is what I needed. I spent most of my days at home now that it’s getting very hot outside so I think I deserve the shopping spree I did today.

Dream Wedding Dresses at Dress First

I have been waiting for October to come because it is such a special month for both me and my husband for we are going to celebrate our 9th year wedding anniversary comes October 16. Yes, it has been that long yet it feels like we just got married not so long ago. It is probably because we have such a good marriage that makes me feel blessed to have been married with the man of my dreams.

When we speak about wedding, the first thing that comes in our mind is a beautiful Wedding Dress. Our wedding is the grandest, the most unforgettable and special moment of our lives so it is just right to pick the right motif and the perfect wedding dress brides could ever wear because it is their big day and a wedding can only happen once in our lifetime. Well, it is in a woman’s conservative point of view.

If we are to get wed again in our tenth anniversary, I would surely, with all my heart renew our vow that we made almost 9 years ago. And I would be more than willing to go through all the stress in my wedding preparation just to make it beautiful. I am eyeing on wedding dresses, shoes, bouquets and wedding accessories at DressFirst right now and oh boy, there are just tons of gorgeous dresses to choose from.

However, after just going through each page, I found the stuff that I really would like to try on someday. Following photos below are lifted from DressFirt.com’s website that I believe are perfect. As for the wedding dress, I love the sexy detail of this Mermaid Sweetheart Chapel Train Organza Satin Wedding Dress With Embroidery Beadwork. This dress can be bought either in white, ivory, champagne and pink. I also love that a bride can have an option as to what color the embroidery is going to be according to her taste. Embroidery color choices are white, ivory, champagne, pink, gold and silver.

My second favorite from their site is this Mermaid V-neck Chapel Train Satin Lace Wedding Dress With Beadwork. If a bride is a bit conservative then this dress would be perfect for her since it is not too revealing with 3/4 lacey sleeves yet it has the elegance and current look of the gown.

Of course, one has a wedding gown, she should then choose the veil that would greatly match her dress.

9 years ago, I chose ash blue as my motif and if I had to choose again, I would go fuchsia or hot pink this time as my motif and I think the two bridesmaid dresses below are the prettiest.

Halter Dresses Are a Very Cute Choice

Halter dresses are a very cute choice, but they’re often considered seasonal. Very few people want to wear a halter dress in cold weather for obvious reasons. They’re stylish, but they don’t do much to keep you warm. However, if you have a halter dress in your wardrobe you’re sad to see left behind for cooler weather, don’t despair. Pulling off a halter dress in the winter is just a matter of careful accessorization. With proper outfit assembly, you can keep it working nearly year-round.

The first rule of seasonal dress is layering. Most dresses work just fine with an appropriate coat over them. This has the added benefit of being easily removable when you move indoors. This has the drawback of making it less-than-obvious that your dress is a halter dress, but often this is all it takes to let you survive the trip out.

Next up is scarves. For cooling days in autumn, sometimes all you need to accessorize a halter dress is a good scarf. Scarves aren’t as thorough at keeping you warm as jackets, but they do a lot to keep your neck and shoulders warm, which is where your dress fails in this regard. Finding a matching scarf is an excellent option.

Universally, tights allow dresses to work out-of-season much more easily. A good pair of tights is priceless. If you can find a set that keep you warm while still being stylish, you’re absolutely golden for future wardrobe enhancement.

These are just the basics, but with proper outfit assembly, there’s no such thing as clothes for summer only!

Shopping for Dresses is My Weakness

Dresses! Why are you so beautiful? Why are you so tempting to buy? How can I say no if seeing beautiful styles, prints and colors on one of the online stores are having all dresses for sale for $7.99 each? I found myself checked out three items in my cart just thirty minutes ago. I put them earlier but closed the window and was not going to buy them but then this little devil inside me pushed me hard to open the website again and buy them.

Blame me if I like dresses, I am a woman and dresses are my weakness not to mention, they are affordable. Dresses attached below were the items in my cart, waiting for their arrival next week and hopefully they will fit me good. I trust my selection and size, I have shopped from 10dollarmall before so I am good of the items I picked.

I love their prints and colors, as you may notice they all have some blue-ness in them, can you tell blue is my favorite color? They are MSRP for $64.99, $49.99 and $24.99 – sold on the mentioned site above for $9.99 and they’re on sale today until Sunday for $7.99 plus shipping. All three items totaled below $30. Amazing deal I got there, don’t you think? I am a happy shopper as usual!

Mommy, the Girls and their Summer Dresses

Here are recent photos of me and my girls. They were taken at the Fair Park in Dallas last Saturday right by the entrance. We received a compliment from an older woman when we were at the park because of the  matching summery dresses we wore that day. She said, we looked cute and that our dresses matched and blended with the colors of the cabana and colorful rides in that place.

I think the only thing I like about summer is that we get to wear nice summery, comfortable, stylish and colorful dresses that best suited for the season. Take note, dresses are easy to put on and doesn’t need to spend so much time in front of the mirror trying to match your outfit with other accessories. Besides, dresses if you are not brand conscious are easy to find and are cheaper to buy.

I am not the most fashionable girl you will see on the street but rest assured, the dresses or outfit I am wearing aren’t complicated and would look good on me.

…at 30, I should take care of myself not just for my husband and other people but for myself. Having two children already and weighing 96 pounds, towering a height of 5’1″ isn’t bad at all.

Totsy’s Summer Dresses for Under $10

I don’t mind spending money on dresses that are really my type and I could wear over and over again. I just hope that when the items I purchased at Totsy’s today will be comfortable and will fit me good when they arrive. I have been looking for a halter type dress both online and in-stores but I couldn’t seem to find what I really wanted.

Totsy  sent me their blowout sale ad in my email and I took the time browsing for their dresses. How lucky I am for I found these dresses shown below. First and fourth photos are surplice halter dresses for $6 each original price was $32. The second photo is for Jadyn which cost me $5 more than my dresses. The third photo is an elastic waist tank dress for only $7, original price was $82.

No regret after spending $36 on clothing today for I really got a pretty good deal in all items I checked out at Totsys. With that price, I bought 6 dresses in total (2 items aren’t shown in photos). And oh take note, I didn’t pay for the shipping by the way. Right now, they offer free shipping promo for orders $35 and over. Isn’t that so sweet? I found the dresses I wanted plus I didn’t have to burn my gas going to the mall (I even doubt if I can find the same style and price there knowing that I am going to have my two girls with me, shopping these days isn’t easy with kids in tow).

No other clothing website can beat that, I believe, not even Body Central, Forever 21 or Alloy. I am a happy shopper here today!
